Firstly, let me state that this is a great extension and I've used it for many years.

The features it has should be part of Firefox by now so why not contribute the entire code to Firefox?

This would also be more efficient too and we won't be in the current situation too with respect to FF57.

Credit would still accrue to the original coders; and perhaps keep a fork as an addon for new feature development etc.

The code is fully viewable. An xpi-file is just a normal zip-file and the source code is inside of it in plain text. So the code is already out there for all to see.

I think Firefox/Mozilla need your explicit permission and code; please could you follow through. It would be great to have the functionality built into Firefox.

This was posted on Twitter:

If the developer is willing, they should reach out via bugzilla to upstream the code into Firefox.

Won't happen for too many reasons to mention here. To start with, everything Mozilla ever touched came out half-baked, etc. (MRTech Toolkit, Session Manager come to mind, etc.)
TMP has been around for over a decade and the code, as mentioned above, is available. Mozilla knows about TMP and its userbase very well.
Since when Twee has become an authority on all things Mozilla? Image
This discussion is about nothing.
